It's ALL Sally's fault

Both of us have had the tatting doldrums recently but Sally recovered faster than me and showed me these diamonds she's been making. 



I was so impressed I thought I'd play again with the pattern which can be found here.

I decided not to go for the beads in the middles of rings like Sally but I put them on picots and on the outside of the motif. 

This was done with Lizbeth 153 (Rainbow Taffy - a real favourite of mine) and Lizbeth 104 (Summer Fun) with two plain Olympus threads. I used a size 40 for all of them.

I think the doldrums are over now - thank you, Sally - I have other projects in mind for the next few days!!!!

  3. I wish I could blame one of my two sisters for some of my tatting adventures. Unfortunately, neither one tats... or does any kind of "crafty" endeavor! I do love your color combinations!

  5. The 'doldrums' didn't seem to affect your speed! So colorful! It really boggles my mind how you can blend all these colors, make all the connections, and add beads at the same time!

  12. I usually don't like rainbow taffy ( i like all the other hh colors), but when you present it like this, i find it formidable!!!
